Caring For Our Own
CHS is excited to offer the kinship support group Caring for Our Own online beginning January 2021. This group provides a convenient way for families to gain support with the unique set of experiences common to kinship care. Through a series of ten online meetings, kinship caregivers will learn how to assess and build on the strengths and needs of the children in your care, and gain assistance and ideas for working in partnership with the helping network, the children, and the birth parents.
Kinship Caregivers step in to support children and youth who for a variety of reasons cannot stay with their birth parents. For some families, kinship care happens when a child comes into the custody of a social services agency. Kinship caregivers who are caring for a child in DSS custody are eligible to receive financial and other supports when they become a licensed foster parent.
This group opportunity includes additional content that meets the training requirement for licensure in North Carolina for those who are interested in that resource. Whether you are a kinship caregiver interested in making connections with other kinship caregivers, learning about resources, or applying to become a licensed, we invite you to join us!
